On this particular bicycle commute, I was surprised by a snow squall. As I did errands after work, the snow worsened rapidly and I could feel it sticking to my face. I won’t lie; I felt a touch of pride at not being daunted by the weather. While I’m not a fan of selfies, this became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. Besides the square crop, I increased contrast, and decreased texture. Texture isn’t something I typically reduce, but I wanted to soften the snow falling in the background.
WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
